I dont know, but I love the term degenerated flash, please let me use it :)

If page_size is not a power of 2 (264,528),  the & (size-1) operation
for getting the offset  does not work, you need to do a real modulus.

The flash can be in standard mode or in power of two mode. You need to
check the status register to know if the chip is in one mode or the
other.

The flash is in standard mode from factory, you can change the mode to
power of two, but the data is corrupted and you cannot change  back to
standard mode.

I guess they are using some bits reserved to ECC for data and that way
you can squeeze some bits for user data.
